COUNCIL LADY MELISSA ROBINSON ALLEGES RACISM YET AGAIN WITH HELP FROM KANSAS CITY STAR!!!



3rd District Council Lady Melissa Robinson is full . . . Of bad ideas.

She's one of the most vocal legislative voices of the defund the police local control movement. She has tirelessly advocated for more cash in service of the 18th & Vine District without any plan for financial oversight. And, she recently championed a mandatory "implicit bias" training for City Hall that has caused a massive eye-roll among nearly every denizen of 12th & Oak.

And speaking of offensive gestures . . .

Once again Council Lady Robinson plays the "race card" in defense of her agenda and in response to a rebuke from Northland Council Lady Teresa Loar.

A wordy and capricious op/ed from the newspaper attempts to spin the confrontation and sell it to subscribers. We quote the material in the name of fair use and because information wants to be free . . 

The premise:

"First, Loar implied that City Councilwoman Melissa Robinson could not possibly have written her own remarks on the subject of whether or not to privatize the city’s animal control operation. “That was a very nice speech someone wrote you, Miss Robinson,” Loar said during the public discussion. “My guess it’s labor somewhere.”

"Robinson, who is Black, responded to her white colleague this way: “Let me address you addressing my intellect. I have an MBA; I don’t need anybody to write a word for me.”

Fact check . . .

NOBODY SAID ANYTHING ABOUT HER INTELLECT, BASICALLY SAID THE COUNCIL LADY WAS GETTING WORKED LIKE A ROOKIE POLITICO PUPPET!!! IT'S COUNCIL LADY'S ETHICS THAT WERE ATTACKED AND THAT'S FAIR GAME!!!

It gets worse . . .

"Then, Loar appeared to mock Robinson physically, with a neck roll and shimmy that Robinson and others who saw it read as overtly racial."

Again, another fact check is required . . .

TRUST TKC: NEARLY ALL AMERICAN WOMEN SWIVEL THEIR NECK WHEN ANGRY!!! THIS BASEMENT BLOGGER HAS FRUSTRATED MORE THAN ENOUGH LADIES OF EVERY DEMOGRAPHIC TO KNOW THIS FOR A FACT!!!

Thankfully, in the end we think Council Lady Loar brings a great deal of wisdom to the situation and is unafraid to address the issue at hand in a forthright matter . . .



‘This is bothering her more than it’s bothering me.’ She’s young, she’s new. All I asked her was who wrote that. I would have said that to anybody . . . Oh for God’s sake,” she said. “Everything with Melissa is racial.”

However, it's not Council Lady Robinson who is solely at fault. She is clearly a brilliant and promising legislator with a bright future but a local institution has done her and the community a disservice by attempting to capitalize on petty culture war rhetoric.



Accordingly . . .

SHAME ON THE KANSAS CITY STAR FOR EXPLOITING ACCUSATIONS OF RACISM IN SUPPORT OF POLITICAL POSTURING AND ASCRIBING HATEFUL MOTIVES TO NEARLY UNIVERSAL GESTURE!!!

The Star attempts to enable Council Lady Robinson for a petty column rather than explaining to the young politico that she can't cry wolf every time her feelings are hurt. Politics is a rough business and the new 3rd District representative would do well to understand that her constituents are unlikely to believe that racism is the answer to every single problem in their district that has also been plagued by gross financial mismanagement and myopic development strategies.

Yes, racism remains a problem but the challenges confronted by the 3rd District are complex and deserving of multifaceted solutions. Council Lady Robinson touts her education but so far she has yet to demonstrate any significant level of legislative skill and simply relies on repeating accusations of racism whenever she is challenged. The accusations leveled with help from local dead-tree media are not only an insult to readers but also a disservice to 3rd District residents who deserve more thoughtful and productive representation.

Actually, this is a hopeful post from TKC for a change. You seem to think that people want their representatives to be more thoughtful and work hard. I hope that's true. But what we've seen from all of KC is just people with their hand out waiting to get paid by one corrupt scheme after the next. From East side to the Crossroads, kc council is just useful as a service to open the city hall piggy bank.

Racial bias training for KC Council. Guaranteed not to address Robinson's own racial bias that filters criticism of her through a racial lens. So much easier just to dismiss the criticism as racial- no need to address the criticism, and turn it into an attack on the critic- two birds with one stone! (Ignore the lack of actual progress it causes.)

Wow, the third district is doomed, these two clowns (Ellington and Robinson) are the most hateful, divisive and racist people to grace the city council. What exactly have they done for the entire third district? These two knuckleheads think the east side stops at prospect. They’ve never been past prospect when it comes to neighborhood meetings, they haven’t offered covid testing east of prospect, nothing they’ve done helps anybody east of prospect. Between the mayor and these two idiots this city has gone to hell.

When all the "activists" have to play are the race card and ever-increasing "demands", over time the public generally understands and gets tired of the same empty crap, stops listening, and pushes back hard enough that even the cowardly other electeds find it possible to say NO.
With the endless riots, ridiculous demands, uninformed proposals, and a seemingly endless line of fake organizations, the public has about reached that point.
Once again, ideas or proposals that started out having some validity have been hijacked and kidnapped by the most extreme "activists" and step by step have squandered the public's support.
It's all become silly and little more than background noise and whatever progress might have been accomplished is long past.
When the current "spokesmen" for the "movement" are the best they can do, the game's pretty well up.
And the Star simply follows them down the toilet.
Sad.

Bullcrap to English translation:

Racist: Bogus claim often used by racists themselves against dissenting voices in substitution for the words "I am not incompetent political hack that's a puppet of labor unions!" or to cover other political or human deficiencies.

Whatever is going on with Robinson and Loar sounds childish and petty. There are more important issues for the city council to tend to but there always seems to be something/someone that impedes their focus. I know, I know it's politics as usual. Having said this, it is a bit entertaining and someone should tell Robinson having an MBA does not necessarily mean the person with that piece of paper on their wall is the smartest person in the room. Case in point...

Wow. Geezers geezing about personal beef that doesn't concern them in the least. Color me shocked! I mean what would we do without TKC to keep us all the gossiping Boomer bitches we've always been! Bunch of Gladys Kravitz bastards!

FACTS said...

CORRECTION TERESA LOAR: EVERYTHING WITH WHITE PEOPLE IS RACIAL... SINCE 1619. I’d prefer you say that race is not the perspective you’d apply or choose for a specific issue rather than this statement blaming Melissa Robinson for race relations in Kansas City or America. That’s not cool, either.

I agree that sometimes, Black people misplace the notion of racism with more serious issues but race is ever present in everything from food, to music, to money - it’s everywhere. Race is not always the highest issue to be in address but it’s always waiting in line. No one Black person made it this way. This is the system established by Whites. Whites just don’t like to be confronted with the issues of their own doing.

There’s an opportunity for Teresa Loar to stand in power here... and she is missing it.

Robinson, like so many other local politicos (Forte, Peters-Baker, etc) is Smolletting! What a joke. Just because someone who is white, heterosexual, etc., etc., etc., disagrees with you, it doesn't make you the victim of discrimination. It just means they disagree with the position you've taken.

Melissa Robinson Crusoe: a castaway who spends years on a remote deserted Council island near the coasts of Bankruptcy and Moral Decay, encountering grifters, influence peddlers, and exiled members of the Kansas City Star editorial board, before ultimately being rescued by a Somali-pirated freighter bound for the slave auctions of the Barbary Coast!!!

Everything with Melissa is racial.

She got her MBA from Webster. What a fucking joke...that is literally an unaccredited MBA mill. Pay your $$ and get your document.

If that is the defense of her intellect - she is truly stupid.

Is there a more irrelevant local newspaper than the Star. Hoping the new owners see this and make major changes or give up and throw in the towel.

We've all known somebody like her, especially in recent years. Everything that does not go her way during the course of the day is somehow racist. Did the diner burn your toast at breakfast? Wouldn't burn a white person's toast. Did somebody cut you off while driving on the highway? Cracker must have known I'm black. A co-worker in conversation uses a forbidden word, like ranger, big house or plantation? It's a microaggression, fire her!

The best remedy is to ignore her. Make as little contact as possible.

Except those are racist too.
